Prickly pear cactus in bloom.

Flowering cactuses are a beautiful sight.

Most of the year Phoenix is a sun-blasted, bleak moonscape wilting in a heat that actively tries to kill everything living.

But March, ah, March is fantastic, with eternal shorts-and-t-shirt temperature and the flowering of the cactuses. It’s wonderful to see these tanks of the flora open up to sprout bright flowers for just a few days.

You can watch the picture above and many more in high resolution in my Sonoran Yard Flickr set.

You have thoughts? I’m @niclindh on Twitter and I want to know what you think.
